Bought some rough 4/4 red oak a couple weeks ago. And while most of it planed nicely to 3/4” without much issue, there was a pretty long section (4 ft out of an 8ft board) that showed splits and gaps as soon as they were planed, but were not visible when in the rough.
Some of the slits go all the way through, at least a good 1/16” wide. Others only seem to be through half of the thickness.
So I guess the questions are
b) Is there any fix for this, either the surface splits or the straight through splits? Granted red oak isn’t too expensive, but I hate to toss 4 feet of material.
